California Day 1

Our first full day the kiddos were up at 5am! Oh well, I was sort of expecting it with the time change. I have to say what a blessing Matt was :) Matt just finished his first year of college, he is a guy and I actually thing both of those facts are enough reason to NOT feel the desire to wake up early and spend your time with kids. He got up with us EVERY morning, sometimes made the kids breakfast if we didn't actually go and get breakfast. He played with them, was the mains source of entertainment, took us places like to the mall and park...he gave up his whole week pretty much for us. What a sweetheart...thank you Matt! 

Anyways...our first day was sort of low key since we were jet lagged, etc. We played outside with the puppies (Jack and Lucy), took a walk down to our favorite eating stop (Heirloom), went swimming and Matt took us to a park so the kiddos could play. All in all it was a pleasant first day :)
